Control Audio Playback

You may run into an issue where you plug your laptop into a projector (Smart board) and the sound disappears or comes out of the wrong speakers. You can select where you want sound to play (any version of Windows):

1.  Find the speaker icon next to your clock (this area is called the System Tray).
    RIGHT-CLICK that icon


A window appears showing all possible audio playback devices for your computer.
3.  Select the device you want sound to play through and then click Set Default. The green arrow will move indicating your change:

Click OK to close the window and you should receive your audio through your selected device (assuming any required cables and volume are set correctly).
